This Travel Photo Thursday shot was taken on our whirlwind 5-hour tour of Rome as part of a Mediterranean cruise. Most of my shots are pretty standard tourist fare, but for some reason I really like this one of chestnuts on a street cart. Around here you only get roasted chestnuts in the winter so it was a bit strange to find these on a hot summer day. We couldn’t resist the nice sweet mellow aroma and bought a bag.

With one of these guys you could find parking anywhere in North America.
This is where I discovered real Italian mozzarella. They’re kind of hard to see but the slices on the far left were a true pizza revelation to me. I’ve come close to recreating the fresh flavors back home, but I haven’t quite got it right yet. It’s the sauce.
